hybrid

12 posts in this topic

So I am new here. I am also not the best golfer either but I am so addicted to the game. I just love it. My question is do they make a hybrid iron with steel shaft?

Welcome to the forum.  The answer is yes.  Check out the Manufacturers websites and look at the specs for the hybrid.  You will see different shaft options.

Thanks. I went to golf & ski a couple of days ago and all they had were graphite.

Why would someone new to golf want a hybrid with a steel shaft?

You will  probably be sacrificing considerable club head swing speed compared to graphite. Which may most likely translate into lost distance.

To stogiesnbogies: my swing speed is between 90 to 92 and that a graphite shaft is a lot harder to stay consistent with. I really like the weight. I have rented the Nike slingshots and love them but they don't make them any more. So I am trying to find a set of irons similar.

at least that is what golf and ski told me about graphite shaft clubs.

The nike slingshot hybrids can still be had new on ebay for about $35-$45.

Hey Mrmudd....

Whatever works for you.....but my swing speed is between 85 and 90 and I love regular flex graphite shafts.....to each his own.

Still playing 2,3,4-hybrids - Cleveland HALOs. Love them. Don't know what I'd do without them - all with steel shafts. 92 mph swing speed.

yeah sure hybrids can be made with steel shafts.

However a hybrid is originally made to get the ball airborne more easy.

Because a graphite shaft is lighter it easier to do so. That is why you don't see

them so often with steel shaft.

The Callaway x-hybrids were available in steel. I bag the 2h, 3h and 4h. Definitely sacrifices distance, but they do act perfectly as iron replacements... Going iron distances...

I wanted steel shafts when I started as well. I remember having V-Steel 3 and 5 woods with steel shafts because I liked the weight. I was use to swinging a baseball bat and if the club was too light I felt no control.

That was 12 years ago. Now I only have steel in my irons, 2 hybrids with graphite, 2 fairway metals with graphite and of course a Driver with graphite.

You can always re-shaft a club with what ever you want. I don't think graphite is harder to control though as long as you have the right flex. That's what matters IMO.

    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
    • From Sat: 1 - 3 putt 9 - 2 putts 8 - 1 putts I call that a pretty good day with the chicken stick!
    • Haven't been to a driving range yet this year and went out to play my first round of the year on Sat.  No warm up just right to the first tee and bam, nice lil fade to about 100 yards.  Drop it to 4' and I am putting for a birdie!  WOW!  What a way to start. Second hole I pared, third hole I pared as well!  What is going on I thought?  Bogey most of the other holes with a real bad triple but end the front with another par.  42 on the front is looking good! Play about the same on the back with a lot of bogeys and 3 more pars and end with a 43. 85 my first time out this year was sweet!  Only missed 1 fairway and was 14 & 15 for putting.
